Bryce Speed is a multi-medium painter whose work focuses on speaking the unspoken language of visual art through his abstract images. In a recent statement Speed said, “I create paintings that are simultaneously both abstract and representational. These works are occupied with a larger idea of structure and parts, creating an image of containment and movement. Each piece uses a personal pictogram language that is steeped in the intersectionality of nostalgia, identity, and early twentieth century abstraction. Through this visual language, I seek to classify and organize the memories and experiences that pervade the everyday.”

ISABEL BORNSTEIN BIOGRAPHY
Isabel Bornstein was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1988. She received her secondary education from St. Andrews Scots School and the Waldorf Rudolf Steiner School. During her studies, she cultivated a learning style focused on imagination and creativity.
After completing her secondary education, Bornstein traveled to Berlin, Germany. During this time, she became captivated by the city’s dynamic art scene and creative energy. Following her return to Argentina, she continued her education at the esteemed Universidad De Palermo, where she studied art and creative writing.
Bornstein’s passion for art and design was further nurtured by her upbringing. Her mother is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer, while her father owns an antique shop and art gallery in Buenos Aires. Bornstein was able to work at her father’s gallery and regularly attend museums and auction houses, thus deepening her appreciation for the arts.
Bornstein settled in Charleston, SC, in 2011. In 2020, Bornstein took an assistant role working at the George Gallery. This experience confirmed her desire to pursue art full-time. She secured a studio in Charleston, where she has been devoted to creating her paintings.
Since dedicating herself to art full-time, Bornstein has exhibited her work in Charleston. In 2021, she presented her “Seefood Series” at The George Gallery and had a solo show at Hedhi Studio in 2022.
